superb stay in Lyme Regis
Unbelievably clean with the best quality products and interior used, very good under the current Covid restrictions with social distances and cleanliness of all areas. We felt safe. The food was excellent and service excellent, we would recommend and come again, loved the milk in glass bottle and give a crap toilet roll please look at alternatives for plastic bottles in bathroom

Perfect treat
Gorgeous room and bathroom with so much attention to detail. From the beers, water and fresh milk in the mini bar, to the delicious range of teas and coffees - with delicious fudge and biscuits! - Every little detail made all the difference. The staff were very welcoming and dinner and breakfast wonderful. A great place to stay in Lyme Regis.
